Retreat in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our Exuma vacation, and are already planning our return! Villa 30 fit our needs perfectly.....great location, great amenities and we wouldn't change a thing. We rented a car for the first 2 days, which enabled us to tour the island and get our groceries. We enjoyed Jolly Hall Beach just a short walk away, and then rented a boat from Minns to explore some of the small islands nearby. Stunning beaches and water, with some fairly good snorkeling around Fowl Cay. We have visited many Caribbean islands over the years, but Exuma is now our favorite! Thanks Fred and Kathy for sharing your vacation home with us...we will be back!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was immaculate and well stocked with so many things you can use for your vacation from beach towels, chairs, mats, coolers, etc. Very nice kitchen stocked with most utensils you could want/need. We loved having our morning coffee overlooking that beautiful blue water. We had friends in units nearby and we all spent a lot of time on our patios. Kathy was great to work with and provided lots of information both before we left and then upon arrival of what to see and do.

Location!! :)

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Exuma. We stayed in villa #30 at the Palm Bay Hideways.... best decision!! The villa is directly on the beach with gorgeous views to wake up to everyday. There is some good snorkeling right off the beach as well as a gorgeous beach a short walk away. The villa was very comfortable and clean. It is also located in a neutral location on the island, allowing for a good travel time to either end of the island. Highly recoemmend!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was truly enjoyable.It was immaculate,comfortable,and we spent most of our time sitting on the patio and enjoying the gorgeous view. The proximity to the beach was perfect..just a matter of a few steps to the sand...and we took advantage of the lovely pool area at Palm Bay as well as use of the paddle boat and other equipment which was included in the rental. We would definitely return and want to thank our terrific hostess who was extremely helpful in every way.

Villa 30 the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We found Villa 30 to be a perfect place to stay, ie, it is well represented in the online photos, it is clean and well stocked, and it is convenient to the best parts of the island. It is great for kids, as we had a 3 and 6 year old with us and they loved the little beach in front of the villa and the pool you see in the pics.
I would recommend a rental car as the Hideaways shuttle is reliable but only runs every 2 hours on the hour, exactly when Elvis' water taxi leaves for Stocking Island. This causes lots of waiting in town for the taxi, or waiting in town after a supermarket run to get back to the villa.
Jolly Hall was a 5 minute walk and beautiful. Stocking Island was great, with the Atlantic side a must with kids as it has some great dunes to climb and waves to bodysurf.
One aside, beware that it may be a bit windy, as it is a sailboating destination. This can take the edge off the hotter days, so it is bittersweet.

Everything you need for a fabulous holiday in the Bahamas!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Kathy and Fred's Villa in November 2013 and had a fabulous time! We went with our 11-month-old son, and the place was perfect for our little family. The condo is very well equipped - it had everything we would have had there if it was our very own place. We loved it because we were able to enjoy the spectacular view right from the front porch or even sit right on the beach while our son was napping during the day. A very short walk up the beach is another really amazing beach with perfect white sand, some trees for shade and shallow warm water - perfect for afternoons at the beach with our little guy! The folks at the front desk at the resort was very nice and the resort was clean and well-run. Just up the beach is a great restaurant/bar called Latitudes right on the water with music and dancing on Friday night - fun!!! Also, not to be missed is the delicious (albeit deep-fried!) food at the Fish Fry - a short 10 minute walk from the Villa. We had never been to the Bahamas before, and we were very happy with our choice of Exuma Island, and of this Villa. The water looks just like the postcards... gorgeous! We would highly recommend the Villa to anyone looking for a great vacation in the Bahamas!
